The entrance to this beautiful Medieval city is this Etruscan arch that is a part of the walled fortress that still surrounds this city.

Ancient arch in piazza grimana near university for foreigners. A must see here in Perugia. You can also see the exterior of the university for foreigners and walk up via garabaldi to Castel St ' Angelo
